Spring Break Essentials: Food

Last week I told you about what I consider the essentials of a successful spring break. Number one on my list is food. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as food is the subject of most of my blog ramblings. Luckily I live in a city that has numerous options for food – from your everyday run of the mill restaurants like Applebees and Outback to over 400 unique food carts scattered throughout downtown. So no matter what type of visitors are in town, food options are not a problem.

Shamrock Run – Rain or Shine

Last weekend I participated in my first Portland run in the rain. This is my third spring in the rainy city so I knew it was only a matter of time before one of the organized runs I was participating in was rained out. But “rained out” isn’t really the right phrase because Portland events rarely get called or delayed for rain. If they did, this city wouldn’t have any successful events in the spring!
